Boston Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington wants to re-sign DH David Ortiz and OF Cody Ross before they hit the open market next month.

The Boston Red Sox seem to be moving away from adding a starting pitcher before spring camps open, which would rule the team out on free-agent SP Roy Oswalt (Phillies). "We wouldn't rule out adding a starter, but I think it's unlikely at this point," Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said before filming a town-hall event with manager Bobby Valentine. "Keep looking for ways to improve the team, including the pitching staff, but I wouldn't expect any major changes between now and the report date."

Although Boston Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington indicated the team has less payroll flexibility than previous offseasons, he hinted it would not stop the team from pursuing pitching. "We've had conversations with the agents for both guys as well as several other free agents," Cherington said. "We don't have as much room in our payroll as we've had in previous years, but we're trying to figure out ways to improve our pitching staff. Maybe we have to be a little more creative this winter in doing that than in some other winters but we're not ruling out anything."
